Baha’i

Task 1: Watch the video for an introduction to Baha’i.

Some important Bahá’í beliefs are:

  • Bahá’u’lláh came to make all humans become one family
  • There is only One God, but he has many names
  • All the great religions have the same source (God)
  • God treats all humans as equal
  • God treats men and women as equal
  • Prejudices (unkind beliefs about people without knowing them first) should be fixed
  • Nations should learn to get along and co-operate with each other
  • Science and religion do not have to disagree, because they are looking at the same world from two different sides.
  • People should try to learn the truth for themselves
  • Everyone should get an education (go to school or learn another way)
  • The world should have one extra language that everyone understands

Task 2: Which of the beliefs do you think is the most important? Explain why.

Task 3: Look at the pillar below which is a pillar of the Bahá’í House of Worship in Wilmette, Illinois, U.S. Why does it contain religious symbols of other religions?
